Time To Understand My Pet: What Do Cats Really Want? [Part 1 2023]

Having Another Cat In The House

I am a Siamese cat. My owners have brought a strange cat into the house, and ever since I’ve seen it, I’ve had an overwhelming want to rip out that other cat’s eyes. Why am I getting so worked up?

Although every cat has its own unique personality, certain breeds have characteristics that are more obvious than others. Siamese cats are known to express their feelings more freely than other breeds, and they are also less willing to let stranger cats into their territory than other types of cats.

Cats are known to get along nicely with one another when specific circumstances are met. The early establishment of a relationship with one’s future neighbor is the single most critical step. If two cats are raised together from birth, not only will they be able to coexist peacefully but it is also likely that they will find communicating with one another to be a highly pleasurable experience. In particular, Siamese cats will behave as though they are members of the same family; they will frequently sleep together, play together, and even occasionally hunt together.

But none of the foregoing holds true for cats that have already interacted with one another as adults. At that point, the cat was already used to following a specific pattern of behavior. She has already accomplished the task of training her masters to the highest level, and she resents the presence of another cat in the area where she and her masters live. It’s conceivable that the hostess cat will make an effort to fend off the alien intruder from its domain. The difficulty, however, is that the proprietors have locked the doors, and the stranger has nowhere else to go. When bringing a new cat into the house, owners should exercise extreme caution so as not to cause this problem. The house cat, especially if it is a Siamese cat, should have unrestricted access to the rest of the house while she is confined to a separate room. However, she should be allowed to roam freely throughout the other areas of the house. It is appropriate for the host cat to investigate the guest cat, but not the other way around.

Getting Overwhelmed By Rushing And Jumping Around

Why is it that occasionally I feel like I have to run around the room and jump on the wall? I’m usually really calm and collected, so why do these feelings sometimes overtake me?

Cats are distinguished from humans, and especially from dogs, by their inflated sense of self-esteem and their aristocratic behavior. They do not act childish, they are not easily pleased, and they do not exhibit too dramatic feelings. Their amazing composure serves them well in all situations, including when they are threatened, in their interactions with other cats, while hunting, and even while they are on vacation.

It is not easy to keep one’s composure under such trying circumstances. After all, it is nothing more than a front. The cat constantly maintains a tranquil appearance on the outside, but on the inside… When a cat is threatened, the hormone adrenaline is released throughout its body. This causes its heart rate to quicken, its blood pressure to shift, and its skin temperature to raise. But the cat will never, ever lie about how it really feels, regardless of what happens.

When the threat is no longer present, the cat’s body reverts back to its regular state, but its emotions are looking for a way out; even a cat that is very good at keeping himself under control needs to let off steam occasionally. Following the capture and execution of their victim, cats that hunt do this to themselves. They celebrate their joy and enthusiasm by dancing around her. Cats that are not allowed to roam freely do not have this chance available to them. Instead, they have something called “crazy half an hour,” during which they release all of the pent-up energy by tearing through the home at full speed. There are a lot of folks who enjoy jumping around on furniture. They skitter over the carpet, leap onto a chair or sofa, and then dash into the next room from where they landed. Others start running in circles around the room, picking up their pace to its maximum. When this occurs, they disobey the law of gravitation and, relying on centrifugal forces, surge along the walls in an effort to climb as high as they can.

Issues After Having Cat Children

I like to think that I am a very wonderful mother, but as time goes on, my kittens start to get on my nerves, and I find that I am always yelling at them and pulling at them. I feel bad about this since I consider myself to be a very good mother. What exactly is going on with me?

Cats, just like humans, go through phases where they can’t stand the company of their offspring. In humans, this stage lasts from the time a child reaches the age of twelve until they reach the age of eighteen. When a cat’s kittens are between twelve and eighteen weeks old, they are considered weaned.

The care provided by the mother cat is the primary factor that affects whether or not the kittens will live. It is unusual for cats to exhibit any interest in their own offspring, but because mother cats are responsible for feeding, comforting, and protecting their young, they naturally acquire a warm, caring attitude toward their kittens. The most dangerous type of cat is a mother cat who is very worried about the well-being of her kittens.

In the event that the social bonds between the mother and her kittens continued, it is quite unlikely that the mother would ever want her kittens to grow up and become independent of her. It is equally vital that they would not want to abandon her themselves of their own free will. However, as soon as the cat stops producing milk and the amount of female hormones begins to alter, the need for the cat to take care of her young diminishes. At the same time, the games that kittens play are getting an increasing amount more hostile. The cat suffers pain as a result of their needle-like teeth and claws, and she has every right to be irritated and resentful of them. Her sons are particularly combative with her in the sports and wrestling matches they engage in, and she matches their ferocity. As soon as they were aware that you were no longer able to play with your mother, they gathered their thoughts and left. In their native environments, when there are few sources of food, cats’ kittens and daughters will, sooner or later, behave in the same manner.

Changes After Cat’s Mother Passed Away

Following the passing of my mother, I withdrew into myself and developed anxiety. I am easily frightened by anything. Will it ever get over?

Grief is something that cats are very familiar with. And because people frequently feel the need to replace their loved ones with cats, the loss of a loved one can also lead to feelings of melancholy.

Research on feline agony has been conducted not only by veterinarians but also by psychiatrists. The condition is most frequently observed in addicted cats who are accustomed to receiving love and attention. A cat that has lost its family and friends will become disoriented. She cries out incessantly, cannot locate a home for herself, and is searching for a companion who has gone missing.

Cats who are depressed frequently refuse to eat. They spend less time playing and may cease caring about how they look. If the cat is getting on in years, this could be confused with senile renal failure or even senile dementia. This is a dangerous delusion: a depressed cat may just be yearning, and if this is the only thing going on (and not an illness), the situation can be rectified.

If the cat’s owners see that they need to provide it with more attention, the cat will be able to overcome its melancholy. If the veterinarian has not identified any underlying medical condition that could be causing the visible depression, the cat should be touched more frequently, calmly talked to, caressed, and have her coat combed and tidied up on a regular basis. It is essential that she be provided with palatable and nourishing food, ideally with a potent and pleasant odor, and that she be hand-fed, if at all possible. It is important that a new routine be established for her so that the cat, who has recently lost a close buddy, will have the opportunity to form an emotional bond with the cat who will eventually take his place.

Communicating With A Kitten

Do you think that if I communicate with a kitten it will make it easier for me to deal with the emotion of loss?

Not at this moment. If a cat is still upset at the death of a friend or companion, a new kitten will not be able to adequately fill the void left in his life. This is a loss that cannot be recovered. No one can take the place of a buddy who has passed away. In the not-too-distant future, the yearning cat will be able to form a relationship with another cat, but this will take place only after the formation of new connections that are distinct from those that have come before.

Cats do not suffer the same psychological effects from being alone as people or dogs do. In point of fact, it is not at all unusual for one of the surviving cats in a household with two cats to act in a way that betrays a lack of happiness following the passing of the other cat. A cat who is abandoned experiences the loss of its companion, which results in it assuming complete ownership of the territory. As a result, it is common for the cat to have a more gregarious temperament; for example, it becomes livelier, more friendly, and purrs more frequently. After some time, her fur coat becomes denser, she puts on weight, and she develops a significantly improved sense of self-assurance.

If this is the case, there is no reason for the cat to bring a new kitten into the house because there will already be one there. However, if the owners are interested in getting another cat, my recommendation was that they bring in a young cat rather than an older cat when introducing him to the household for the first time.

Sleeping All The Time & Nothing Else

In the recent past, I all of a sudden felt exhausted, apathetic, and listless. I no longer had any strength. I have a strong want to do nothing but sleep the entire time. Is this what people mean when they talk about depression?

Perhaps not. Cats do experience clinical depression, and as a result of this condition, they can become preoccupied and lose interest in life. They are able to quit caring for themselves and will frequently refuse to eat. Any significant change in a cat’s lifestyle can contribute to sadness, but owners should first consider the potential that their pet is sick physically if they see a change in their cat’s personality.

If the cat exhibits any of these significant changes, it needs to be checked out by a veterinarian. This situation could be the result of a straightforward fever brought on by a contagious infection that was picked up during a fistfight. When antibiotics are used, patients will begin to feel better nearly immediately and on the same day.

A number of other, more serious diseases, such as kidney and liver diseases, sluggish viral infections, anemia, and some types of cancer, cause similar clinical symptoms of apathy. An accurate diagnosis must be made before starting treatment.

Once all other possible medical explanations for the change in the cat’s behavior have been eliminated, it is safe to say that depression is the only factor at play here. Her treatment is of an entirely different sort; it focuses mostly on gentle treatment, but antidepressants may at times be helpful in addition to this type of therapy. A depressed cat requires extra attention and care. If the cat is unable to care for itself, the owner should take responsibility for the cat’s grooming and ensure that its fur is in good condition. If she stops eating, you should serve her nourishing food that smells good and that you give her by hand. The majority of depressed cats will recover from their condition without the need for medicine if they are given proper care and attention.

Older Cats Recovering Cancer

It has been brought to my attention that cancer is quite prevalent in senior cats. I’ve also heard that he’s making progress in his recovery. Is that the case?

The risk that a cat will develop cancer of any kind grows as they get older, but fortunately, many forms of the disease are treatable and others can be avoided altogether.

Cats Having Illness

And now I’d want to ask my hosts one final question. When they are around me, some of them experience sneezing, some of them experience itchy skin and watery eyes, and some of them even experience difficulty breathing. Am I really to blame for all of these illnesses, seeing as how I’m such a harmless little creature?

The answer is, sadly, yes. The number of people who are allergic to cats is significantly higher than the number of people who are allergic to dogs, yet having a cat can help find a solution to this issue.
